OK, I’ve got a little buried treasure for ya’ll before I go to bed. It should be no surprise to you by now that I’ve gotten a taste for Italo-disco lately, mainly from discovering old Giorgio Moroder records and the modern homage stuff from the Italians Do It Better label. But I haven’t shared any of the original stuff until now and for a first taste Kano’s “Another Life” is about as good as it gets. Combining the most Italian-sounding synths you’ve ever heard with some Rick Astley-style R&B vocals and some of the worst dancing you’ve ever seen coming from a black man, this video is truly a treat to behold. Even if you don’t think you like Italo-disco, this track is pretty much guaranteed to ingrain itself into your brain.
